Man told to grasp driving regulations

A disqualified driver who reoffended was placed on probation for 12 months and banned from the road for a year.

At Jedburgh Sheriff Court, Dominik Rakowski, 26, of Hillend Drive, admitted driving a car while disqualified and without insurance in Wilson Drive on January 18. Solicitor Rory Bannerman, defending, said his client appeared to have “misunderstood when his original disqualification lapsed”.

Sheriff Donald Corke told Rakowski: “You have to try to get a grasp of the driving rules and regulations in this country.”
